Mid-Year Bernie’s Book Bank Check-In: Books I’ve Donated This Year

Mid-Year Bernie’s Book Bank Check-In: Books I’ve Donated This Year

Many of you know that I volunteer at Bernie’s Book Bank, a fantastic organization that provides books to kids in under-resourced areas. The founder of Bernie’s was a reading tutor and realized that many of the kids he worked with couldn’t practice reading at home because they had NO BOOKS! (Anyone visiting my blog understands the tragedy in this statement.) Well, he decided to do something about it, and now Bernie’s has given out more […]

Bite-Sized Reviews of Ballad & Dagger, Spineless, Lia Park and the Missing Jewel, and Mina

Bite-Sized Reviews of Ballad & Dagger, Spineless, Lia Park and the Missing Jewel, and Mina

Today, I’m reviewing a YA contemporary fantasy, a MG historical fiction, a MG fantasy, and a picture book! I hope these bite-sized reviews will be enough to feed your fiction addiction! Ballad & Dagger lends a fantastical twist to the immigrant experience. It’s set in Brooklyn, but in a diaspora community from a fictional island that sank into the sea. The island’s population was a blend of pirates, Cuban Santeros, and Sephardic Jews, and it […]

May & June 2022 Wrap-Up and Best of the Bunch

My Goings-On in May & June: Here are the things that stand out to me over the past two months: May was all about graduation and end-of-school events.  Danielle graduated high school. She’s off to Purdue in the fall! We had her graduation party last week. There was also a whole thing about banning someone from the link-ups that took up way too much of my brain power in May. I won’t go into it […]
